It wasn’t long ago that Dell Potts and Celia Gagnon were co-captains of the Ichabod Crane varsity volleyball team, leading the Lady Riders in the Colonial Council.

Now the duo has paired up at Hartwick College, recently completing their debut campaign with the Hawks.

Over the course of the season, Hartwick went 11-12, winning its home tournament in the process.

Gagnon put together an impressive season with the Hawks, playing in 22 matches, starting 13.

Overall, she had 171 points, including 85 service points, 154 kills, seven assists, 44 digs and 27 blocks.

This comes a year after being named a Colonial Council second team All-Star.

Potts also had a solid freshman campaign, playing in 22 matches during the season, starting 14.

Over the course of the year, the former Rider tallied 80 service points, 84 kills, 17 digs, 39 blocks and seven assists with a total of 112 points.

At ICC, Potts was a first team All-Star as a senior after starting for the varsity squad for three straight years.

Also on the Hartwick Hawks roster is former Maple Hill outside hitter Jacqueline Brathwaite who is a sophomore with the team.

This season, Brathwaite competed in five matches, scoring six service points, two kills, one assist, 11 digs and five total points.
